Same Old Stuff… Dragging it Out…Just Dragging it Out…

What bores me? Let me answer that. For one, going to a meeting, and hearing the same old message over and over again (We are at…we need to be at…) and you work at achieving the task… A month later, you go to another meeting, and hear the exact same message…again. Makes you not want … Continue reading

And the Oscar, Emmy, Grammy, and Pulitizer Goes To…

When I was 10 years old, I wanted to be the well rounded entertainer (actress/singer), as well as a best selling author. What am I now? I am a document analyst/processor. Are the two connected? You think? However…. It pays the bills and allows me to work on my passion(s).

Too Late: I Want to Shrink Like Those Cartoons on TV

When was the last time I stood out anywhere?  Last week, when I went to the lab to have a CT Scan done (my doctor said the paperwork had been faxed and I did not need to bring anything).  I arrived about 1130AM, took a seat, and about 20 minutes later one of the staff … Continue reading

Another Radio Station Outsourced

I should have known. The local classical station that I’ve been listening to off and on for about 25 years is no more. Now don’t get your hair all tangled up. The station is still on the air, still playing classical music and still has the same call letters. So what I did I mean … Continue reading

A 21st Century Citizen with a Split View

Do I belong in this day and age? Do I feel comfortable being a citizen of the 21st Century? If I do, explain why…But if I don’t, when in human history would I rather be? These questions came to me in an email message courtesy of both The Daily Press and Plinky. I really didn’t … Continue reading

What Word to Eliminate From The Vocabulary?

The word would be "pesky". Why? The word is straight up irritating, especially when the weather meteorologists and the cooking people use it. Examples:"…there is a pesky upper level low system that is the culprit behind the weather we are currently experiencing…" or "…if only these pesky little bubbles would dissolve…". YUCK!! Enough already!! By … Continue reading

Why Be Normal Unless You Want To Fit In….

Dictionary.com defines the word normal as"…conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural… " If that what normal supposed to be, then no. I've no desire to live a "cookie cutter"life…been there, tried that. I live life to my own beat…outside of the box.

Finding Beauty (or Wisdom) in Some Ugly Past Life Events

What is something I consider as “ugly” — war, violence, failure, hatred — while trying to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in my thoughts. I believe that there is nothing more ugly than war, with violence not too far behind.  I pray that I never have to experience these things.  However, what I … Continue reading

Pick and Choose

Plinky asks the following: When faced with confrontation, do you A) Head for the hills -or- B)Walk straight in? And was there ever a time you wished you'd had the opposite reaction? That depends on the situation. You will know. I pick and choose my battles; some folks talk of lot of "stuff" so they … Continue reading

Flaws…Human Flaws

I would not exactly call them weaknesses….flaws would be a better word being as we all have them. Allow me to list them Trust Fear Envy FEAR in not TRUSTING in my abilities, ENVYING those who have it all (or appear to): looks, money, traveled to places I longed to go to FEARING what other … Continue reading
